Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a hosting server and a client. Because the data exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a web hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the options are limited because you will not have root access to the server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. These are all actions that are performed in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of applications for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
